Disney Infinity 3.0 has been meet with a ton of sad news the past few weeks, with reports of a number of figures planed for release and play-set content coming to the game being cut and scrapped after the games announced cancellation. Now, the game is getting shut down for good, but Disney released a press statement explaining how this is all going to work, which will be listed below.
Some noteworthy information indicates that support for the games famous Toy Box features and support for the Mobile and Steam releases of Infinity are on a time limit now; both have shut down dates listed & announced. Shame to hear this honestly, as the Toy Box offered a lot of great content and younger gamers likely grew attached to this feature of the game.
One thing to point out though: The updates to the game which contain the Play-Set’s for Marvel Battlegrounds & Finding Dory alongside the post-launch figures is on the PlayStation Network, Xbox Live & Nintendo E-Shop servers.
